We were all pretty tired and exhausted after our flight from SFO to OGG so we opted to pick up some take out from Aloha Mixed Plate on our way to our hotel tonight.  At first I was sad that many of our favorite places to eat would be off limits because the food is so carb-intensive.  But, you know what?  I’m determined to forge ahead and report back my successes and failures eating Paleo on Maui.

One place I was sure we couldn’t go back to was Aloha Mixed Plate.  I mean, come on, almost everything comes with 2 scoops of rice and macaroni salad. What did I order?  The grilled mahi mahi plate and they happily subbed in a salad for the french fries and cole slaw.


Fitbomb ordered the Hawaiian plate and polished off the Kahlua pig and lomi lomi salmon.  Our carb-addicted kids scarfed down the rice and macaroni salad.  No one touched the poi.  I like Aloha Mixed Plate because it’s affordable and has a great view of the beach when you dine in.  Is it the best food ever?  No, but my standards are lower when I’m eating on Maui.

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
